The membership fee for the Friends of Thwaite Gardens is £8 per annum, or £12 for two people at the same address, payable on the 1st August each year.

Recently the University has agreed that members may visit while the volunteers are on site – currently 1.00-3.00pm on Tuesdays and 9.30am- 2.00 pm on Fridays.  Please continue to behave responsibly in terms of Covid-19 and do not visit if feeling ill or if you are required to isolate.

If you would like to become more active and help with ongoing work, we are always looking for members who are willing to help with the maintenance and the setting up of projects (with the approval of the University) in the Gardens.  The normal hours that the Friends of Thwaite Gardens volunteers meet on site to carry out gardening and project work are on Fridays from 9am to 2pm.

The Friends of Thwaite Gardens also offer the opportunity for sanctuary seekers to join the group of volunteers who help to maintain the University’s Botanic Gardens at Thwaite Hall. For more information see the University of Sanctuary webpages.
